Entertainment

From the internationally recognized Kimbell Art Museum to nearby Six Flags Over Texas and the Rangers and Cowboys stadiums, from the Bass Performance Hall and to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, no other city boasts such an unmistakable mix of preserved Western heritage and unrivaled entertainment venues.

Go West!

Commonly referred to "where the West begins," Fort Worth is a recognized icon of Western heritage.  In the nation's 16th largest city, you can tour the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, listen to live country stars at Billy Bob's Texas, and see the world's only twice-daily cattle drive.

Cultural Arts

The Cultural District is only minutes from the hustle and bustle of daily commerce in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Bordered by a tree lined boulevard paved with bricks and surrounded by manicured grounds, the area  is alive with charming shops and restaurants.

Lifelong learning

Lifelong learning

More than anything, the Annual Gathering is about learning new things and visiting with friends, whether they are friends you've known for years or those you've just met.

Fort Worth has grown since the days of cattle drives...

Fort Worth, once dubbed "where the West begins," has grown and diversified since the days when cattle drives and spittoons on street corners were synonymous with the city's nickname, "Cowtown."

Home to Sundance Square, a vibrant 35-block dining and entertainment district, and the historic Fort Worth Stockyards, Fort Worth offers visitors a taste of the Old West while enjoying the modern amenities of a culturally diverse and economically vibrant city. From the internationally recognized Kimbell Art Museum and cultural arts district to nearby Six Flags Over Texas and stadiums hosting both the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys, no other location boasts such an unmistakable mix of preserved Western heritage and unrivaled entertainment venues.

Cowtown has much more to offer than just cowboys and horses, and the 2013 Annual Gathering Committee heartily invites you to come experience the resounding culture and interesting history the city provides.
